So we had Addisons Family Birthday Party on August 7th at 11a.m. with BBQ-Cupcakes and lots of Zebra and Hot Pink Decor! Everyone wore black and white and hot pink-made for some super cute pictures! (Will post soon-I promise). Addison got in a 2hr nap at Mom and Dads before the big event at their house. Great Great Aunt Nuna-Uncle Bill, Great Aunt Debbie & Uncle Tommy, Cousin Jill, Aunt Kelly, AJ, Samantha, Aunt Katie, Meme, Poppy, Gammy, Daddy, Mommy, Uncle Big Daddy aka Justin and Robin were all there to celebrate with you on your big day! Ms. Barbara your teacher made you an adorable outfit it was black and white zebra with a "1" on the front with your name in pink over the "1" with matching white bloomers with zebra bows-it was adorable! You got lots of clothes, books, toys and dolls. Mommy helped you blow out your candle-although I am sure you would have rather done it yourself. You took the cupcake with both hands and planted your face in it. It was great! Lots of pictures to come. After a day of partying you took a long nap before we were off to Amy and Kyles Wedding Shower. Then on Sunday you and Mommy had a picture session at the Agri-Center in front of the sunflowers-such cute pics but it was one hot day. Ohhhh and not to forget me you Aunt Kelly-AJ and Samantha took you to ChuckeeCheeses on your actual birthday and let you run wild! It was soooo funny-you loved the rides and giggled and smiled the whole time!

On our very 1st 1st Birthday we woke up excited (Mommy could not sleep last night due to the excitement!) haha. I took pictures from the time she woke up till the time she went to school. (It's what I do). I recruited Bryan this morning aka Dada to help me with the picture taking process. Mommy and Daddy gave Addison a bright red Radio Flyer Pathfinder Wagon for her 1st Birthday. She loves to ride in anything and likes to go fast. (Yes-this is my kid). What an amazing year it has been. The fastest one I have ever seen go by. She crawled at 8 months, walked at 10 months, has 4 teeth-the 2 bottom ones and the 2 top ones, and next week she will be driving! So crazy. More than anything she has changed Bryan and I for the good. God definitely knew what he was doing when he gave us Addison. She is such a great baby-now toddler. We are really spoiled by her-we love her smile & laugh and funny little personality. She now feeds herself her bottle-can scarf down PB&J like its nobody's business and carries her pink chenille blankie in her right hand and sucks her left thumb (seriously cute!). I will get around to posting the pics that we took of her this morning. Tomorrow is her Birthday Party~so lots to do around here! Happy 1st Birthday Addison! WE LOVE YOU and are SOOOOO Proud that you are ours.

We had Addison's 1st Birthday Party with Friends on
August 1st at 2p.m
At the Collierville Water Park-she loves running through the water and having me or Bryan run her through it
It happened to be one of the hottest days that we have had this year-reaching 112 heat index! My Dad told me that he thought we were all nuts for being out in it. But everyone came to it and as long as they were playing in the water-it really didn't seem that miserable. My Dad watched Addison during the morning so my Mom-Me and Bryan could get everything ready. He did not want to bring her to us because she was sleeping-but since it was her birthday party he didn't seem to have a choice (thanks Dad!). She was asleep when she arrived so we left her in the airconditioning as long as we could-then got her out-sang Happy Birthday & let her have her cupcake! She was a little on the moody side-see no smiles until she hit that water! haha-But as a Mother I was so extremely proud of how she handled her cupcake! She LOVED it! She took the left hand full of icing and the right hand full of cake smashed it between her fingers and ate the entire thing! It was wild. She loved the cupcake-had it all over her-in her hair-on her dress (tried to eat more icing off of her dress!). She was a mess! My Mother is such a huge help for us-she arrived at the park at 11:30 to make sure we had a table in the shade for the event. She got the last table! Thank goodness. Mom also helped out with Addison-the gifts-picked up the cake-not sure how I would have made it through without her. Addison slept all the way home & ended up going to bed a little early that night. It was such a great Birthday Party with lots of good friends. Our family birthday party is coming up right after her real birthday on Friday. Mommy & Daddy got her a big red wagon with all the bells & whistles. But we are giving it to her on Friday because I don't believe in not getting a present on your actual birthday. Bryan asked me tonight if I wasn't sure that we missed a few months back because there was no way that she could already be 1. It is just amazing the amount of love that goes into caring for a child-Motherhood has been great to me and Addison is such a good baby. More updates to come.....
I made these flowers for Addisons 1st Birthday Party! Yay for Mommy!
